“Making the Most of Every Second”: Man Visits Prostitute during Dinner with Wife

Published

on

A dinner with his wife and a short stop to buy cigarettes has turned into jail time for one man from Jiangxi. The peculiar news story of his very short visit to a prostitute is now making its rounds on Weibo.

A peculiar news story about a 27-year-old man from Jiangxi making “good use of his time” has attracted the attention of Weibo netizens today. The man ended up in trouble for combining a dinner with his wife with a visit to a prostitute.

Phoenix News reports on Weibo that the man took his wife out for dinner at a BBQ restaurant in Nanchang this week, when he stepped outside to buy some cigarettes. On his way to the store, the young man saw a prostitute on a street corner and ended up making use of her services. Unfortunately for him, he was caught red-handed by local police raid team and was arrested for consorting with a prostitute. The raid was captured on video.

Holding back a smile, local police officer Luo Gang spoke to reporters about the incident. Luo said the man had left his wife and a friend at the BBQ restaurant for just a few minutes when he ran into the prostitute and decided to go up to a hotel room with her. When his wife was informed of his arrest after the raid, she asked police if they might have caught the wrong man. She had been waiting for her husband to return to the restaurant and could not believe the story.

On Weibo, the news story is referred to with the Chinese expression “Jiànfèng Chāzhēn” (见缝插针), which literally means “to see a gap and stick in a needle”, meaning “to make use of every second.”

The man is currently detained. According to Chinese law, visiting a prostitute may be punishable with imprisonment of 10 to 15 days and a fine of 5000 RMB (±740$).

Chinese netizens have responded to the incident with much banter, praising the man for his promptitude. “My colleague also just went out the door to buy some cigarettes, now I get what it means,” some people said.

This news story shows resemblance to another incident that made its rounds on Chinese social media this week. On July 24, one man also got in trouble while visiting a spa in Zhengzhou with his wife and son. His son, being old enough, got a separate room on the first floor, while his parents resided in a room on the third floor.

During the time at the spa, the man kept leaving his room to ‘check on his son.’ When his wife later noticed another hotel key wrist band on her husband, she went to check the room next to her son’s room and caught her husband with a young lady. Police were later involved to give the man a “stern lecture.”

“At least you can say this guy really does have some courage,” some commented on Weibo.

One Dead, 17 Injured in Guangxi Kindergarten Knife Attack

News of a brutal kindergarten attack in Guangxi has shocked Chinese netizens.

Published

on

A brutal attack on a kindergarten in the city of Beiliu, Guangxi Province, has left at least one dead and 17 people injured. (Update April 29: Two victims have now passed away due to the attack.)

The incident occurred on the afternoon of April 28, when a man stormed into the school with a knife and started stabbing the pupils and teaching staff. The man attacked at least 16 children and 2 teachers. Blurred videos of the scene showed injured children in the playground area, some sitting up and some lying on the floor.

The 25-year-old man from Guangxi’s Guannan village was arrested shortly after the attack and his motives remain unknown at this time. One video on Weibo shows the man being taken away by police. Some online rumors (unconfirmed) suggested the man was going through a divorce and that his wife works at the kindergarten.

Local authorities in Beiliu and Yulin are calling on people to donate blood while the hospital is treating those who were injured in the attack. Images shared on Weibo showed people lining up to donate blood.

In June of 2020, a similar kindergarten attack left 39 children and staff injured.

On Weibo, the incident has become a trending topic, with many people expressing anger and sorrow over the attack.

“Is this another ‘mental disorder’ [case]?” (“又是精神病?”) many commenters write.

“This news really breaks my heart. Those poor children have done nothing wrong, they are innocent,” one person writes. Many others write that they hope the man will be severely punished. “He should be executed on the spot,” some say, with others writing: “Having a mental disorder is not an excuse.”

Delivery Man in Anhui Run Over by Ambulance Sent to Rescue Him

From bad to worse: this Eleme delivery man was run over by an ambulance after being hit by an SUV.

Published

on

On April 12, a delivery man in the city of Bozhou, Anhui province, was run over by an ambulance arriving at the scene of an accident where he had just been injured.

Shocking footage circulating on Chinese social media shows the delivery man lying in the middle of the road when the ambulance arrives and runs over his leg. The incident happened around 12:00 in the afternoon (link to video, viewer discretion advised).

While the delivery man already suffered injuries because he was hit by an SUV shortly before, things quickly went from bad to worse when the ambulance that was supposed to come to his rescue crushed his leg. The man is currently undergoing treatment at a local hospital in Mengcheng county.

Statement on Weibo by the official Mengcheng county account (@蒙城发布).

According to recent news reports, the ambulance driver has currently been suspended and is under investigation.

The incident received a lot of attention on Weibo today, where the hashtag page discussing the double accident received over 150 million views (#外卖员被救护车二次碾压#).

Many comments relating to this incident are focused on the role of the traffic police at the scene of the accident, with people wondering why there was no guard standing next to the victim.

Thousands of commenters also address how sorry they feel for the victim, especially because the lives of many food delivery drivers – facing long working hours and low wages – is already tough enough.

According to Toutiao News (头条新闻), the delivery man works for Chinese food delivery giant Eleme. Wang Gang (王刚, alias) is approximately 30 years old and has a wife and a child. He had only been working for Eleme for a few months and reportedly did not have any prior accidents.

In Monday’s double accident, Wang suffered a mild skull fracture, seven broken ribs, and a fractured lower leg. He is in stable condition.
